The National Government allocated a sum of $234,000 million pesos to address critical issues along the Bogotá – Villavicencio corridor. This step is taken in response to emergencies that have arisen since July 2023, caused by natural phenomena and human actions that have affected transportation infrastructure in the region.

The agreement signed between the National Infrastructure Agency (ANI) and the National Highway Institute (Invías) will allow the transfer of these funds to Invías for the priority attention of the critical points identified along the corridor. This investment project seeks to guarantee optimal operation in one of the most important logistics corridors in the country.

The Minister of Transportation, William Fernando Camargo, highlighted the importance of this step, stating that five critical points have been identified that require an initial investment of $33,000 million pesos. In addition, progress is being made in the contracting of works by $186,000 million, along with other projects that require studies and designs for $15,000 million.

In addition to this assignment, Invías has awarded a contract for $37,000 million pesos to address two specific critical points at km 48 and the Estaquecá bridge. The delivery schedule indicates that in the current period the most complex critical sites will be intervened, while in the following years other priority points will be addressed.

This corridor, which represents 7% of the total national cargo according to statistics from the National Cargo Registry (RNDC), is vital for the country’s economy. especially for the hydrocarbon sectorsoil, agricultural, livestock and agroindustrial.
